Job description

Are you experienced in providing Complex Care to children and young people?

Are you looking for a part time role or additional hours on the weekend?

Apollo Home Healthcare will soon be supporting a new package of care for young boy in Wolverhampton, who has complex care needs.

We are urgently seeking experienced Support Workers who can provide the care he requires on weekends.

You will be dedicated, passionate about your job, enjoy delivering one to one support and able to build positive relationships with this young boy and his family.

Our Service User has Cerebral Palsy and Autism and so routine and consistency is very important to him.

As part of his care team, you will be supporting him with accessing the community. A typical day out for him would be going to the local shopping centre as he is fascinated by lifts and escalators and enjoys watching them in action! – He watches lots of videos of the different types and amazingly, can name the countries that they are in.

He is a very independent young boy and he can become frustrated if he is not able to do similar things as his peers. Therefore, it is important for his care team to encourage independence as he likes his own space and does not like to be fussed.

Our ideal applicant will be calm, patient and ideally have knowledge of Epilepsy and Autism, although this is not essential.

Essential Experience Required

  • 6 months previous care experience
  • Medication Administration
  • Personal Care
  • Moving and Handling
  • UK Driving Licence

Desirable Experience

  • Knowledge of Epilepsy and Seizure Management
  • Knowledge of Autism
  • Knowledge of Cerebral Palsy

We have the following shifts available

  • Saturday – 12pm – 5pm
  • Additional hours available during half term

This is a personally rewarding role where you can build on your clinical skills and experience, whilst delivering exceptional care and support to our service user, really making an impact on his day to day life.

Why work for Apollo Home Healthcare?

We specialise in the provision of highly complex clinical care services delivered in the homes of service users.

We are passionate about delivering the highest standard of care and we recognise that our Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers are integral to doing this. In return for your hard work and dedication you will receive:

  • Flexible hours to suit
  • Confirmed rotas
  • Excellent rates of pay
  • Holiday pay
  • Full clinical training
  • Opportunity to work with other service users in the area
  • Ongoing professional training and development

We need key workers on the front line supporting our service users in the fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated recruitment team on 01902 847111 or email on recruitment@apollohomehealthcare.com to find out more.
